Hi Vagabond! Hi Folks!

Super Thanks for all the photos you have been posting.

Hello

U.S. Mortar Model 98 107mm (4.2")



The Marines called that the Howtar. A mix of the carrage from the old 75mm pack howitzer and the (then) current 4.2 inch mortar tube.

Anyone know if the US Army ever used this?

Interesting!
Sgt, Scouts out!

How was this used in practice? (I mean loading, aiming, firing). Was it unlimbered and set up on a baseplate or is there some provision for elevation that I'm not seeing in the picture?

Loading and firing was the same as the M-30 4.2 inch heavy mortar. There was no baseplate. I have seen them go by and I have seen them set up for firing. My guess is there is a way for the tube to be moved back to reduce the overall size of the unit for ship board storage. When set up for firing they look a lot like the pack 75 until you see a round get dropped down the tube.

The prime mover was the M-422 Mighty Mite. Each unit could be airlifted by a CH-34 helicopters. (In the Marines, the 34 was a CH while the Army labelled it a UH).

Some of my old history,
Sgt, Scouts out!
